Here at Edinburgh Silver we are committed to providing you with the ability to make your gifts that much more individual, meaningful and personal – this ability is engraving.

If you need your gift in a hurry then the option to engrave your item absolutely does not mean that your gift will not take any longer to reach you. We offer a fast, reliable and efficient service so you can be assured your item will look even more beautiful with your desired message engraved onto it.

First, we thought we would show you how the engraving machine works because we are amazed by the process and the technology. Such a big machine can produce the most elegant and intricate detail on to a small piece of delicate silver and we truly think that this is fascinating. 



The engraving machine uses a fine diamond to inscribe your personal message onto the chosen item. It takes a lot of skill to work the machine and fortunately we are very luckily to have a really professional and brilliant engraving crew who definitely get the job done!

We would like to show you some samples that the team put together for us to show you in this blog:

*Please note: It is extremely challenging to photograph silver at the best of times let alone when it is engraved. So please do know your engraved pieces look a lot more beautiful when you see them. Our photographs cannot do them justice!! Yet we wanted to show you some examples of how the engraving looks*

From experience and seeing hundreds of items leaving the office less is definitely more when it comes to messages on your items. If you are not sure about what you want engraved onto your piece then do make sure to phone us just to ensure your gift looks as good as it can. You cannot return engraved pieces so we advise you just to take extra care in what your desired message is.

Adding a name, DoB, a memorable date, initials or a small message suits most of our items very well. These types of messages we believe transforms the gift into something that can be treasured for a lifetime.

We hope this blog has given you some insight into what our team does during the engraving process. Adding some engraving onto your piece just makes it seem even more unique and heartfelt
